BEST HARDCORE PUNK - EVER

MarkyBGoode

Minor Threat's First 2 records are examples of Punk Rock at it's best. The music is tight and precise and often played at breakneck speed but could never be confused for Heavy Metal, etc. Ian MacKaye's vocals help the band convey the angst and disillusionment of the group and its number of growing fans. The length of the songs average about one minute. If the tunes were any longer they might cause a listener's blood vessel to burst or even cause a mass to riot! Check it out.

Who cares?

Can't somebody write a review for this that isn't strictly sentimentality? This music is boring and shallow, just like the lyrics.

Definitive Hardcore

PeteyP

These tracks were the first birth cries of straight edge hardcore in the 1980s. I just love listening to this. It is so pure, so clean and focused, right from the opening lines, cutting through the dross and jabbing straight to the heart of the matter (it's in your head - Filler - you call it religion, you're full of shit)

Do yourself a favor...

and just download the whole album. Right now. Excellent album for lovers of 80s hardcore. I have never been straight edge (by ANY stretch of the imagination). But the power of the music added to Ian McKaye's explosive and zealous lyrical delivery makes this album a bomb in the midst of exploding! Do it!

this record changed my life

15 minutes of harDCore fury. 20+ years later, Minor Threat's powerful music and intelligent, thoughtful lyrics continue to inspire me.

Just great!

To the reviewers trying to make some kind of political comment, just shut up! This record was and is great. If you want to talk politics go to a political website. Emusic is about the love of music.

for Ian. From young punk to big mouth commie-lefty-hippie. Gun in mouth now.

This will take you back!

Just as good today as it was back then. If this doesn't raise your heart rate you'd better check to see if you still have one.

A Brief History of BYO Records

By Jason Pettigrew, Contributor

When put into the perspective of the history of American hardcore, the Los Angeles-based label BYO didn't make a "popular" impact: You don't hear historians referring to Mark and Shawn Stern's imprint with the same kind of reverence routinely bestowed upon such labels as Dischord and SST. But to dismiss the label as a mere footnote would be way off mark: Since BYO's 1982 launch, the Stern brothers - in their roles as founders of… more »
